Spring Break in San Francisco Day 6

  • We really didn’t have an agenda today other than wander around, get lost, and enjoy a new part of the city
  • Food adventure in the morning to try the legendary Sushiritto! Is it sushi or a burrito? Why not both! 
  • Walked from our hotel by Chinatown through downtown and all the way to Embarcadero Street by pier 39 and 40. 
  • Just wandered about aimlessly taking photos of everything. 
  • Bought a hand-made tie dye shirt from a street vendor
  • Watched the BMX bikers and skateboarders that congregated around the station
  • Ate at this eatery called Crepes and Curry, tried the Crab Crepe. Though it wasn’t all that bad, it was admittedly a little bland for my taste and probably one of my least favorite meals throughout the trip.
  • Just enjoyed every last fleeting moment in one of the greatest cities I’ve ever been to. 
  • So ends the spring break of a lifetime

"You should kiss the ground you walk on if you were born in this country— take it from an old man who once had to wear the Star of David on his shirt. There’s a safety to living in such a diverse place. It’s much more difficult to brainwash a population that is composed of so many different nationalities and so many different viewpoints."

Spring Break in San Francisco Day 5

  • Food adventures to eat dim sum - Ate at a pretty upscale Chinese restaurant called Yank Sing in the downtown financial district. Hands down the best dim sum I’ve ever had. Also quite possibly the favorite meal of my life. 
  • Haight and Ashubry - This place was literally Disneyland for stoners, hippies, beatniks, and hipsters. You name it and they had it - an overwhelming abundance of smoke shops, Indian and Himalayan gifts, thrift stores, vintage and antique clothing, tie dye shirts, a taxidermy shop, food co-ops, bookstores, etc. We literally wandered aimlessly up and down the streets for five hours just exploring and discovering new things. Ate pizza at a hippie pizza parlor - bomb food and good vibes. It was such an interesting sight to see people freely smoking weed in public on every other corner. One of the most fascinating places from San Francisco. What a trip. 
  • Castro District - Went to check out the historically gay district of San Francisco but most stores were already closed by the time we got there so this wasn’t anything special. 
  • Persian Food for dinner - Ate at a fancy Persian restaurant called Lavash. Beef koobideh, Shirazi Salad, and Persian tea. Perfect meal to end a wondrous day of exploring.

Spring Break in San Francisco Day 4

  • Fisherman’s Wharf - Had brunch at Eagle Cafe by the pier, overall good eats and a nice seaside atmosphere. Fisherman’s wharf was pretty much just a big tourist trap but it was still a unique experience. Plus we got to see all the sea lions just chilling.
  • California Academy of Sciences - An aquarium, Amazon biosphere, planetarium, natural history museum, and botanical garden all in one. A relaxing, surreal experience to stroll through different environments and get lost amidst the exotic and strange.
  • The Mission District - The Latino cultural center of San Francisco. It was interesting how the surroundings dramatically changed from rows of quaint vintage bohemian stores and attractions to blocks of homeless people and crack addicts. Definitely one of the grittier neighborhoods we visited. Food adventures to get tacos at La Taqueria, supposedly one of the best taco shops in the city. Fantastic street art and murals everywhere we went.
  • Finished the night with dessert at the Ghirardelli Chocolate Shop downtown by Union Square - Got the sea cliff, with a massive chocolate chip cookie over vanilla ice cream layered with hot fudge, whipped cream, chopped almonds, and a cherry. The decadence was overwhelming.
  • Twas a long day traveling through pretty different regions of the city but such a rewarding adventure as always.
